A number of label executives are reportedly battling it out to sign new-school rap group Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All.
The ten-man band featuring standouts Tyler The Creator and Frank Ocean are said to be under the radar of Interscope’s Jimmy Iovine, Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, Steve Rifkind of SRC and Diddy’s Bad Boy empire.
PageSix reports that Diddy recently met with Tyler The Creator who demanded that he set up a meeting between him and Justin Bieber.
A source tells Six that Diddy’s “desperate to sign the group to prove that he’s on to something hot.”
“Tyler asked Diddy for access to Justin, so he pulled strings. Tyler did meet with Justin, and Diddy helped make it happen,” the source said.
Steve Rifkind of SRC is reportedly ready to make the band a formal offer and previously met with The Creator who told him,
“If you are serious about the meeting, I want Randy’s Donuts, swivel chairs and a megaphone.”
No word yet on what Jay-Z and Iovine are willing to offer.
